In some, the horses were caparisoned in maguificicnt trappings ; in others, they were decked from head to tail, with flowing ribbons. Some were driven by coachmen, with enormous double faces . one face leering at thc horses : the other cocking its extraordinary eyes into the carriage : and both rattling again, under the hail of sugar plums.

Varieties. A "VISIT TO ABERNETHY.-He was ra 'ther under the middle stature, and some Avhat inclined to corpulency ; "yet so slightly, 'that the idea of fat never entered into the - mind of any one who looked on him. His face was very peculiar, and somewhat pear shaped-that is, it wns narrower than or- dinary at the summit of the forehead, which was high, and ploughed traversely with deep furrows. Mis eyes were small, deep set," grey, and very keen and twinkling. There was evidently a good deal of sarcas- tic humour in the lines about his mouth. The nose was long and well-shaped. A soiled white cravat enveloped his portly double-chin and neck-and his dress, which seemed to have been huddled on, not put on, consisted of a blue dress coat, cut in antique style, and decorated with bright brass buttons-a lemon-coloured waist- coat, and snuff-coloured "continuations;" and a mean-looking pnir of old red slip- pers, which only half concealed some whity brown stockings, completed his costume...

Alas, no ! If ever that was the intention, it lias signally failed in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred ; but of rendering: them callous as regards their breaches of deco- rum.

BRAIDWOOD MAGISTRATES. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR-In my last visit I drew the attention j of your readers to the decisions, of the Braid wood Bench, tri its summary jurisdic- tion ;. I now propose to furnish a few facts that Have come-linder my knowledge, res- pecting the manner in which the judicial duties of the magistrates are usually dis- charged at that immaculate bench : and I have no hesitation in saying, that a single glance at the statements, that I do here in the most placid arid unequivocal manner put forth, will convince even the most scep- tical of the necessity of instituting a rigid, enquiry into the administration of justice in the interior (Braidwood especially) in this Colony-such an enquiry, would, I feel j confident, bring to light a system of imbe- cility qr corruption (practised at country benches) the existence of which is a libel upon justice, and a disgrace to the times in which we live. And now I crave your attention and that of your kind r...
